High-frequency trading is all about speed, which explains why Aldec’s new reconfigurable HES-HPC-HFT-XCVU9P PCIe card for high-frequency trading (HFT) apps is powered by a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGA. That’s about as fast as you can get with any sort of reprogrammable or reconfigurable technology. The Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA directly connects to all of the board’s critical, high-speed interface ports—Ethernet, QSFP, and PCIe x16—and implements the communications protocols for those standard interfaces as well as the memory control and interface for the board’s three QDR-II+ memory modules. Consequently, there’s no time-consuming chip-to-chip interconnection. Picoseconds count in HFT applications, so the FPGA’s ability to implement all of the card’s logic is a real competitive advantage for Aldec. The new FPGA accelerator is extremely useful for implementing time-sensitive trading strategies such as Market Making, Statistical Arbitrage, and Algorithmic Trading and is compatible with 1U and larger trading systems.
